- The Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act of 2003 (FACTA) has a provision regarding the "proper disposal of consumer information" and requires the "shredding... of papers containing consumer information" so that personal information cannot be read or reconstructed.
- Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (SOX) says that paper and electronic records must be kept for five years, and public companies must disclose and evaluate their internal controls. This means that an internal document retention and destruction policy is crucial.
